The Amazon Mobile App allows Windows Phone users to quickly search, compare prices, read reviews, share products with friends, access Gold Box Deals, and make purchases on Amazon using a simple, yet elegant, interface. To make on-the-go shopping and price comparison even easier, the Amazon Mobile App includes helpful shopping features that allow users to scan a barcode or type a search to quickly compare prices and check availability. Users may also save time by pinning the Amazon barcode scan tile to their Start screen, enabling them to simply tap the tile to take them straight to the barcode scanner.
Shoppers are able to access any Amazon store around the world from a single app by simply selecting their desired Amazon country store. Amazon customers have full access to their existing shopping basket, wish lists, payment and Amazon Prime member shipping options, order history, and 1-Click settings. All purchases made on Amazon Mobile are routed through Amazon's secure servers just as they are on the web.
Important note regarding permissions. Amazon Mobile requires access to the following services to operate properly:
Phone: Within the app you are able to place a call to Amazon Customer Service. From the home screen, tap More -> Contact Us -> Call Customer Service, and we will place the proper number in the phone app and dial it.
Camera: Bar code scanning requires access to the camera function.
